Advances in Hospitality and Leisure

Advances in Hospitality and Leisure (AHL), a peer-review series published annually, is seeking to deliver refreshing insights from a host of scientific investigations pertaining to hospitality, leisure, and tourism while rendering an academic forum to stimulate discussion on current literature, contemporary issues and emerging trends essential to theory advancement as well as professional practices from a global perspective.

The main focus of the series is to divulge the innovative methods of inquiry so as to inspire new research topics that are vital and have been in large neglected. AHL strives to address the needs of the populace willing to disseminate seminal ideas, concepts, and theories derived from scholarly inquiries. Potential readers may retrieve useful texts helping outline new research agendas, suggest viable topics for a dissertation work, and augment the knowledge of the new subjects of learning.

Since the début of the series in 2004, AHL has published in a variety of conceptual and empirical articles contributed by tourism, leisure and hospitality scholars across 14 countries. The themes of those research papers cover a broad range of issues such as consumer behaviors, economic impacts, environmental impact, human resource management, marketing, natural disaster, pricing strategy, product development, risk management, service quality, and terrorism.
